Sobieraj, Shareholder, Brinks Gilson & Lione; and Charles C. Valauskas, Legal Counsel, Valauskas Corder LLC, to conduct a mock mediation under WIPO Mediation Rules during the 2021 LESI Annual Conference held virtually. Those rules are particularly advantageous in intellectual property related contractual disputes involving parties from different jurisdictions. In addition to the mock mediation between a university and a business, the panel will present the essential features of mediation, ADR pros and cons compared with court litigation, the shift to virtually-conducted mediations and arbitrations, and what to expect if you engage in a mediation.
